About us

About us….
We are fully aware of the needs of gardeners of all ages and levels of experience. Lyonshall Nurseries is  more than happy to help with queries and to share our knowledge and passion for all things connected with gardening. With this in mind we only grow and sell what we totally believe in….

Our history…
The Nurseries and Garden Centre has gone through major changes during last few years and we are now able to provide gardeners of Kington, Leominster and the surrounding area with a comprehensive range of plants, gardening products, service and value, that they would find hard to get elsewhere.

During September 2000, Graham and Gill Thomas, of Pembers Oak Nursery, Kingswood, Kington took over and together with his son Simon, have started to develop and improve all aspects of the business.

Sadly, Graham passed away in May 2014. Fortunately his knowledge, passion & wisdom has been passed on to Simon. With Gill still at the heart of the operations the team  still grows all the fabulous geraniums, bedding plants and other quality products, 

We are always trying to maintain our ethos of using little or no chemicals and unatural substances in our approach to growing. We have started to use biological control and peat free composts. Our feeding is often organic fertilisers and biostimulants.

With the help of Jo, Chris, Clare, Babs, Ann &  Chanice, whom are also very knowledgeable and experienced, we are constantly improving and reviewing things to give our customers an excellent choice and great value in a relaxed friendly atmosphere.

Jo is the backbone of the nursery & is very popular with the customers. If there is advice required on a vegetable or flower topic, Jo is the first choice.
Chris has recently joined us and brings with him his expert knowledge in 'real' gardening.
Babs, creates the lovely displays, very popular and is always keen to help & advise.
Ann has the amazing floristry & creative skills she has developed over the years.
Clare is Clare! Invaluable and can give advice & service in all the deparments.
Chanice will warm even the coldest days with her smile and is eager to make sure you have a great welcome.

Our experience…
We are experienced and enthusiastic growers and by leveraging the Nursery side of our business we are able to keep our prices extremely competitive at the same time as maintaining high quality.
We have a glasshouse that we open to our customers in which we grow geraniums & seasonal bedding in the spring and summer, and during the autumn and winter we grow Pansies, violas, cyclamen and primroses etc.  Behind the scenes we have a number of  glasshouses and polytunnels in which we grow our plants. These are at the Nursery and also at another location no more than 5 minutes away. In past years Graham won Large Gold Medals at the Royal Welsh Show with his exhibits of pelargoniums & fuchsia.

Our amenities…
We have refreshments with real coffee and modern disabled toilet facilities available for our customers  with ample parking.
